Celebrity photographer Terry Richardson is no stranger to unseemly accusations about his professional behavior.
Now, a model has come out to say the photographer promised to get her a highly coveted photo shoot if she agreed to sleep with him.
British model Emma Appleton said the famed photographer came on to her via social media, dangling a coveted Vogue shoot if she agreed to bed him.
His spokeswoman said the message is a fake and denied her client’s involvement.
Appleton uploaded the grab to Twitter on Sunday afternoon – setting off a flurry of shocked replies from her followers before she deleted her entire account and took the picture off her Instagram page.’If I can f*** you I will book you in ny (sic) for a. (sic) shoot for Vogue,’ reads the message grabbed by Appleton – which she claims was from the photographer who has been dogged by claims of sexual harassment over the years….
Despite many accusations of sexual harassment in the past, Richardson has never been charged, or convicted of any crime in connection with any allegations.He continues to work at the highest echelons of the fashion industry with luminaries such as Lady Gaga singing his praises after collaborating with him.
Richardson is known for his sexual imagery in his work. He also photographed then Sen. Barack Obama during the run-up to his 2008 presidential run.
